The last octet is non zero which indicates named has finished processing
the matching DNSKEY record.

Yes. "update delete example.com type65534". named won't delete then
records it is still using.

Yes. You should be deleting them anyway. They are only left around so
that you are reminded to do whatever the next step is once the signing
completes. e.g. add DS to parent zone, add DLV record.

DHCP doesn't add/remove DNSKEYs. These records are only created when adding /
removing DNSKEYs (and NSEC3PARAM records in 9.7).
